Congress leader Manoj Shukla said that loans for purchasing petrol-diesel and groceries were symbolically distributed from the bank.

“Price of diesel and petrol has been rising every day. The rate of grocery items has also almost doubled. The government has completely failed to control rising inflations. Therefore, we were bound to set up a bank to give loans to poor people,” Shukla said while talking to journalists.

He further said that if inflation was not controlled by the government, he along with his party leaders and workers would stage protests across the state.
